- Solution Provides Immediate Payback and Enhanced Capabilities

Bizanga, the global company behind the most scalable and full-featured email and message processing platform, today announced that Tiscali Italia S.p.A. (Italian Stock Market.

We are impressed with the strong partnership between Bizanga and Symantec and the seamless integration both on the systems and the joint deployment.

The Bizanga platform decreased Tiscali's hardware footprint for edge systems by 90% while enhancing its filtering capabilities. At the same time, Tiscali introduced new features such as SPF (Sender Policy Framework) at the edge of its network.

With one of the broadest and most interconnected networks based on IP technology in the world. Tiscali furnishes its clients, privates and companies, with a wide array of services: dial-up and ADSL Internet access, voice, VoIP, media, value added services and other technologically advanced products.
